What some of our EMS members think:

“The University of Greenwich is proud to have joined the Institute of Hospitality’s Education Membership Scheme (EMS). This free for students membership will give them access to valuable industry resources and contribute toward their academic and professional journey. At Greenwich, we are devoted to helping students move into high-quality, graduate-level jobs, which will be further enhanced through the EMS by bringing students into contact with hospitality industry professionals through the mentoring scheme and networking events.” Maria Gebbels, Ph.D. MSc MIH, Lecturer in Hospitality Management, University of Greenwich, UK

"EMS has been an invaluable element in establishing a professional outlook amongst the students at Plymouth Business School. The access to the online books and ejournals has been widely appreciated by the final year undergraduates carrying out research-based coursework and honours projects." Mike Turner FIH, Lecturer Foodservice Systems, University of Plymouth, UK

"Electronic resources are not only a solution to difficult accessibility, space issues or other physical matters; they are tomorrow's business models. Knowledge is no longer embodied in a purely physical form: it is accessible by more professionals in more ways than ever." Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, Switzerland
